Teaching, Learning, Assessment
Farmington’s standards for student learning define the skills, knowledge and understandings we believe all students need in order to become fully functioning well-educated citizens. Our standards provide teachers, students, parents and the community with a clear definition of what students should know and be able to do upon their graduation. Standards represent the essential understandings in the discipline. Standards include the content, knowledge and skills that students need in order to develop an understanding of and ability to apply their understanding of the disciplines. The subsequent assessments, curriculum and instruction are designed to be responsive to student needs and are aligned with the standards. Assessment results drive curriculum and instruction. This priority focuses on accomplishing these efforts and continually monitoring, evaluating and refining our standards and subsequent instruction.
